One of the more pleasant surprises in 2016 was the long-in-the-works, Don Cheadle-powered Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead, which was followed by the announcement that hyper-talented multi-instrumentalist Robert Glasper was planning on doing a tribute album to the late jazz icon. Glasper more than delivered, releasing his own jazzy-fueled singles that sampled Davis, including a cover of “Maiysha” with Erykah Badu, a 2Dope team-up with 9th Wonder and Phonte, and a J Dilla-tinged song with his younger brother Illa J.
Glasper has now released the tribute album, Everything’s Beautiful, his first since 2012’s Black Radio 2. Alongside the aforementioned artists, the likes of Bilal, Haitus Kayote, KING, and Stevie Wonder make guest appearances throughout the 11-track album.
